Celebrate... Everything!

Happy Sunday everyone! I am so excited! I have been stamping today and I have a stack of NEW samples to show you!! I have entered a few mail swaps so I needed to get stamping so that I would have some to mail off! Anyway, it has felt really good to get some stamping done. The reason I was able to get so many cards done was because I copied a lot of these layouts from cards that I have done in card class! Thanks, Becky!! I did pull out cards from a while back so hopefully card class people won't recognize them to easily!

This card is very simple and pretty basic but it uses one of my new most favorite lines of designer paper - Western Sky! I have fallen head over heels in love with this new designer paper! It's coordinating colors are Soft Sky, Blue Bayou, River Rock and Ruby Red. I am going to have to stop myself from "hoarding" this paper! I don't know if I have told you how to make the scallops or not. I took the guide off of my corner rounder so I could stick my cardstock straight in. I like to start in the middle and punch. The corner rounder will punch out a "smile". Then you slide the corner rounder to the right and line up the left top part of the punch with the right top part of the punched out "smile" on the paper and punch again. Go all the way to the edge. Then I flip my paper over and do the other side. I do it this way because it's easier for me to go to the right. If you still don't understand, I will try to find a video tutorial for you to watch. It will make much more sense then! Celebrate today!!
